    or dancing or doing whatever I'm doing there's a pause. There's always a pause, a pause I can't explain. Like for a moment everything freezes and I zone out and my minds with him idk why I don't control it like i could not be thinking about him at all but there's always that...

    I still love her and miss her

    but she is gone. It is hard to let her go. Today was my last attempt to text her and no go there either. Had to make one last try for my hearts sake. Have two others on there and once I clear with them I will drop that too. I do love you princess. Love

    My advice for today? Don't be afraid to let

    yourself cry. I don't like crying. Never have. It makes me feel weak. Ashamed. But there is something therapeutic about going out to the car on your lunch break. bawling your eyes out, driving home, crying some more, then washing it all away, before reapplying the make up and...

    Soppy Mother

    I'm a terribly soppy mother.  I cried buckets when my last child went to school.  There are so many things that I wish would never end: - my children kissing and cuddling me in public - giving me 'spantaneous' homemade gifts, especially drawings and mud creations...

    A cool gentle breeze of late August flows in

    the bedroom window. The soft tan satin curtain billows along as her spirit enters. The haunting memories force me awake, releasing me from such terrible nightmares. I sit up in my bed and I look around the pitch black room thinking I can see. I can sense something's not right so...

    Sometimes I Grieve...

    People commonly talk about weaning breastfed babies and how the mother finally gets her body back to herself.  But no-one ever talks about the grieving process associated with giving up breastfeeding. I haven't breastfed for around 7 or 8 years but every now and again I ...

    I really don't know how

    or if I could let things go. It's one of those times where I feel like everything just happened yesterday. So many things on my mind, from 2 months to over 10 years ago and it all hurts so much.

    It's been almost a year,

    and I still find it so difficult to let go of my ex. Keeping him in my life is only hurting me I know it. I am so confused that it's so hard to focus on everything else. Ah, I need to cry tonight... It's been an exhausting and rough day.
